|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Meadow Brown is the most abundant butterfly species in many habitats. Hundreds may be seen together at some sites, flying low over the vegetation. Adults fly even in dull weather when most other butterflies are inactive. |
Regional variations in the spotting pattern on the wings have led to it being studied extensively by geneticists over many years. Larger forms occur in Ireland and the north of Scotland.
It is one of our most widespread species, but many colonies have been lost due to agricultural intensification.

Excellent shot. Well done on everything here. Thanks. -)
